[73.10] Recent development of the CHIANTI database in the X-ray wavelength range

CHIANTI consists of a database of critically assessed atomic data and transition rates to calculate line and continuum emission from astrophysical plasmas.

During the last year the CHIANTI database has been substantially expanded in the X-ray wavelength region by including a large number of new configurations and lines, and by including ionization and recombination processes in the level population calculations.

We will describe these improvements, the data we used, and illustrate examples of 1) their effects on predicted emissivities and on plasma diagnostics 2) applications to the study of flares in solar active regions
